Adult Day: COVID-19 Resources

As Minnesota "turns up the dial" on re-opening the state, Adult Day Services providers will need to get ready to restart services in their centers. Resuming operations will come with expectations - including enhanced infection control - to provide a safe environment that offers all the incredible benefits of connection and support. 

This page serves as your COVID-19 Resource Library. We will post tools, guidance and resources to help you be in compliance with the state's expectations on your operations as well as help you make sure you are doing all you can to create a safe environment for your clients and staff. 

IMPACT OF MANDATED CLOSURES ON PARTICIPANTS AND FAMILY CAREGIVERS

A recent survey of LeadingAge MN members illustrates the negative impact of the nearly four-month mandated closure of Adult Day Services on participants and family caregivers.Participants required higher levels of care and increased pain medication, as well as sustaining losses in cognition, mobility and strength with increasing feelings of isolation, anxiety and depression. Family caregivers also experienced feelings of stress, depression and anxiety.
